. joan, thanks so much. coming up -- yours at least was legitimate. >>> coming up, what can brown do for you? he's running for re-election up in ohio. but he's got karl rove money machine, whole money machine coming at him, and he's taking him on pretty well. he's doing well. we're going to learn something about winning in a good old state like ohio. republicans have been searching without success over the country for voter fraud and now they finally found it in their own campaign. the biggest case of alleged registration fraud in the country and the republicans are caught paying for it and holding the bag. we can't wait to get to that one. >>> we're going to visit that peril republican universe where mitt romney leads, by the way, in every poll in that universe. the republicans really believe in a liberal conspiracy involving all the pollsters of this country left and right, enthe fox pollsters? maybe they just don't accept the legitimacy of a democratic president, any democratic president. >>> let me finish with my belief that presidential debates are often unfair and almost always
? willy brown is the former mayor of san francisco, former speaker of the house out there. joan walsh is editor-at-large for salon and the author of "what's the matter with white people." i want to get to these points. can you win on the facts having lost perhaps on performance value? >> it's very, very difficult to get people in the world observing politicians to ever come to the substance. they always go for style. they always are influenced by performances, and i believe mr. obama took a licking last night. the public knows that and now to suggest that the facts support what his position is supposed to be i don't think carries. >> you know, i got to ask you a personal question about the president. you know, i do look up to him in so many ways. when i'm with him i say to myself and i do this objectively, i listen to him after he's briefed us on something, this guy ought to be president. he has the command of the issues. he has scope. he has relevance. he can talk to you as regular person in common english as well as the wonk talk. he has an iq that is way up there. yet last night he
. >>> it's been a big week in celebrity news from rihanna and chris brown perhaps getting together to the dueling divas of "american idol." we have it all covered in our "weekend buzz." >> remember bridezilla? a bride perhaps very demanding, asks for a lot of things, can be a little bit difficult. well, they may have to come up with a new name for one woman whose demand list is so far over the top you have to hear this story to believe it, so we're going to tell you all about that. >>> and speaking of brides, are it's been 25 years since the princip "princess bride" hit the big screen. it would later become a cult classic. it wasn't much of a hit actually when it came out. i sat down with the cast and director, rob reiner, why the movie has withstood the test of time. what a great people to hang out with. >> and such a quotable movie, too. >>> first, another check of the weather with stephanie abrams. hey, stephanie. >>> hey there, jenna. i want to show you the front on our map. it's easy to see. you see the clouds and showers, that's bringing us all the chilly air across the entir
to that interaction that we showed earlier between mr. brown and miss elizabeth warren? >> na is sort of textbook how not to run against a female candidate. remember when rick lazio when he ran against hillary clinton and the way he was aggressive and sort of came off like a jerk. the difficulty in debating a woman, it came up debating sarah palin, is that there's a way you handle debating a woman on television so you don't want to look like the heavy and you definitely don't want to look like you're condescending to her or talking down to her. i think scott brown did himself a world of harm in the way he came across. >> because scott brown has always been regarded as a likable chap. you might not like his policies but he's had an affect which people have found warm and personalable. >> i think in this debate and the previous debate he's ruined that image for himself. he's been seen as sort of like a bully. he keeps going after her on this native american question, just over and over again. his campaign is almost centered on it. even when they asked him a question, a sort of fluffy question about the
each other questions. >> let me ask you about donna brown states. as of friday, realclearpolitics average, obama, 7.6 in watching -- wisconsin been in pennsylvania, 10. new hampshire, six. ohio, 5.5. virginia, 3.5. will those numbers change? >> i think he was a tightening of the race. certainly, florida and virginia will be competitive. the problem is ohio. no republican has ever won the white house without winning ohio. there is a path to do it, but it is so narrow to get to 270 without ohio. he has a class problem in ohio. it is hard for him to relate to working-class voters there, who by the way, are not thrilled about obama, but as mike huckabee said, romney reminds them of the guy that fire them. that is a problem. >> if you look at the day-by-day poll, the post-debate members, each category, with the government immigration to social security, medicare, whatever, obama is leading in each category, except maybe iraq, which was not mentioned. >> all because of the debate? >> i think was happening even before the debate. these pieces tend to tighten unless it is a total -- let m
that davis was ready for release but then governor arnold schwarzenegger reversed it. governor jerry brown now has the final say. >>> quite an honor for a bluegrass dobro player, mike al dredge. he was awarded the national endowment of the arts national heritage fellowship. al dredge began playing the dobro at 17. it's an act cow ties resonator guitar played with a slide. you may have seen him playing in clubs around town. he was part of the group "seldom seen." he's toured with lyle lovett and emmylou harris. >>> flies, rat poop, roaches. tonight a really disgusting food alert you'll want to see. >>> next, the reflecting pool is empty. we'll tell you why crews had to drain it just weeks after they finished its rehab. tops. >> 81 today. we're ki of getting spoiled with this touch of summer. i don't think you'll need a jacket tomorrow. mid-50s to 60 by 7:00. 66 to 74 by 9:00 under mostly sunny skies. we'll come back. we made some changes yet again for sunday. stay tuned. >>> and here's tonight's fact from face the facts usa.org. >>> so even the democrats concede president obama did not have
and abortion. correspondent steve brown tells us where that race stands right now. >> this race is not over. i -- i'm not assuming anything. >> senator clare mccaskill is nothing if not careful. she's maintained a safe distance from fellow democrat president obama who's not popular in her home state. and the missouri senator hovers just a bit more than two points above republican congressman todd akin in the real clear politics average of show-me state senate polling. on undecideds are eyebrow raising 10%. >> this is probably two-thirds pro republican undecided so there's enough there, i think, for akin to make up the difference, if he gets the help he needs. >> help has been in short supply in the last three weeks since his gaffe about quote, legitimate rape. and shunned by national republican leaders including mitt romney. >> basically we lift the barn and they put the barn on top of us. in suburban st. charles county. it's not akin folks are mad at. >> we've probably had nor people looking for akin signs after the way he was treated by the party establishment folks in washington d.c. >> i a
sitting forrfour hours. blindfolded,,they confirmed the room smelled bad. (sot: sara brown)""ggh!" (sot: awilda cruz)"it smells like yuck!"(v/o)then tester pat slaven sprayed the room with febreze air effects. more blindfolded staffers were led in.(sst: nicole sarrubbo) "it's a very strong. it's not pllasant." (sot: sara brown) "rrtten fish and maybe some floral notes."(sot: matt fields) "it smells to me to be a llt like a men'ssroom at a truck stop."(v/o)but others weren't as critical.(sot: margaret shader)"it smells like fruit punch." (sot: davidd lloyd)"it's not really a pleasant smell, but it's not awful."(soo)"the bottom line - although thh spray concealed some of the odors, it didn't wwrk as well as it did in the - tempprary." (v/o)so you still need to cleaanout the cat box, out the trash. ((pat on cam)) consumer eports also tested another febreze spray - air effects pet odor eliminator, with thh litter box smell. it did a bit better but ot by much, so you have to stay on top of thattcleaning job! pptrice sanders, fox45 news at ten. into the playoffs...but ended the regular seas
into the ocean. don't spend that money on my friend. don't spend it against sharon brown. >> somewhere in this picture insincerity. >> go to the bottom of the ocean with the dirty secret money. >> why is it dirty secret when it goes to karl rove but it isn't when it goes to the obama pacs? what's the difference? >> about 100 fold. >> so you only call it dirty secret if it's more money. >> in all sincerity i agree with you. i think that this race is still sufficiently close at the national level. and we'll see what happens tonight. obviously it could be a game changer in one direction or another. but i think it would be faolly for groups like that to bail. >> it's bipartisanship. >> the captain of the titanic, ride it down. >> yesterday unsolicited advice was for jenny mccarthy. >> i'm going to go to something more serious, to my fellow conservatives. please stop getting excited about secret maybe not so secret videos of president obama saying things before he was elected president of the united states. you saw this on fox news last night. a video of president obama giving a speech to a
times, whatever it is. last night in massachusetts, senator brown and elizabeth warren. they both said something goofy. viseen that or heard that a billion times. that's regrettably, the unfortunate part. but the viewers get tow watch the whole thing. >> i think if the viewer tunes in, it is a chance to see both people side by side. the great danger for an incumbent president is, if the challenger comes off as being competent in that setting, all of a sudden, the challenger's elevated to being equal of the incumbent. i think incumbent presidents have more at risk than do the challengers. >> greta: is it smart to engage your opponent, or do you just deal with the moderator? do you turn to the opponent and say, look, challenge that one? >> i think you are better off to talk straight to the american people. not even talking to the moderator, talking to the american people. one of the most famous lines, back to your point, about clever lines was ronald reagan saying, i am not going to let my opponent's youth and inexperience count against him. everybody broke up laughing because he had tak
to think about. oh, man. coming up next, more rumors circulating about rihanna and chris brown. >> and the "american idol" diva intensifies next in "the skinny." >> announcer: abc's "world news ♪ skinny so skinny ♪ we have been talking all this ♪ skinny so skinny >>> welcome back, everybody. we have been talking all this week about an apparent feud going on behind "american idol" nicki minaj and mariah carey. two new judges for the season. showed you the video, telling each other offer. more like -- nicki telling mariah carey off. it got very, very heated. apparently, we're learning how bad it got. prior to the taping of "the view" on thursday, barbara walters, our own here at abc, interviewed mariah wasn't on the show. barbara got on the show and kind of relayed what mariah told her in the interview how bad things really got. take a listen. >> she said when nickiinaj walked off the set, multiple people heard nicky say if i had a gun i would shoot [ bleep ]. mariah says she can't take a chance and she has hired extra security. nicki has not apologized but they have since
, alvin brown. and i want to know who do you think impacts -- who are the people that are moved by this dog whistle? >> caller: people that are listening to information that is incorrect, they are being fed fear. they are afraid because of their livelihoods. they are stuck in an era in their mind where possibly the idea of a black person was someone who was -- wanted to live off of the government. it's just -- it's like watching an old movie, and believing the old movie was real. i think that's the way to put it. >> jamal: so we know that's the case. we have a president of the united states who has been arguing to the country that we know we're in a ditch. we know we have got to get out of a ditch. but do we get out of it by everybody getting behind and pushing the car out, or are we all going to get out of the ditch, every man and woman for him or herself are we going to work together or not? do you think that is something america is going to want? >> i get the feeling that mitt romney is being told what to do. i just feel that he's -- he's being manipul
's discuss that and the professor joins us as well from brown university. michael, ana and jayar here. previewsprofessor, let me start with you. is that a legitimate possibility why president obama has been less forceful last night? >> listen, it's more than a possibility. there is not an ice cube's chance in hell that both sides have not been acutely aware of the mountains of scholarly evidence that black men are perceived as a threat before they speak and all as a group--and when they do, look down look away and defer. it reduces that initial perception. there are incredibly interesting studies on this, both sides definitely are aware of this. that is why i think why romney was baiting obama hoping that the angry black man would pop out and also why obama might have shown that deference. >> you getter not criticize george bush you'll look like wild crazy liberals. >> i disagree a little trish a little despite the fact that she is the scholar, you don't have to be a scholar to know that this is part of american fabric, but the president, he was beat. he was tired. he lost the debate.
